I am finally getting back in a routine of working out, and I can honestly say I missed it. I REALLY miss running outside, but I am doing the best I can with my current situation, making sure I put my kid’s needs first. So tonight after work I had a plan…a good work out AND good eats.
When I got home from work, I changed my clothes and was joined by my youngest. It’s been so much fun having them work out with me from time to time. I ensured my fish (I used Swai fish which is a buttery white fish-SOO GOOD) was thawed and preheated the oven to 350 degrees.
Baked fish with lemon and capers
2 fillets of swai fish, or any other good white fish
1 tsp. of capers, rinsed well
2 cloves of garlic thinly sliced
1 lemon, thinly sliced
Salt, pepper, and tarragon to taste
And the secret? Just a smidge of Dijon mustard, smeared thinly over the fish.
Take your fish and pat dry with a paper towel. Thinly smear the Dijon mustard over the top of the fish, season with salt and pepper, then add your capers and garlic. Top with the lemon slices and add a pinch of tarragon. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
Sautéed peas with pancetta
I served with simple sautéed peas with pancetta. Brown 2 Tbsp. of pancetta in a non stick pan that has been sprayed lightly with coconut oil cooking spray. (Regular cooking spray will work as well). Add in 2 cups of peas, season with salt and pepper and cook for about 5-7 minutes, ensuring the peas still have a bite to the taste.
